receiving from paula broadwell. the "wall street journal" saying the fbi agent who initiated the investigation at kelli's request is under scrutiny. the agent has not been identified but allegedly sent kelley shirtless photos of himself. started with a complaint about harassing e-mails. he here's what we know about the woman who made that complaint, jill kelley, married to a cancer surgery, she has three daughters, lived in tampa, well-known among washington social circles. they have been friends with general patreaus and his family for five years. friends describe kelley as an innocent victim about e-mails accuse kelley of flirting with patreaus. how does this impact the careers of the two generals but also implications as well in defense secretary leon panetta has asked that general john allen's nomination to be supreme commander put on hold. for patreaus, panetta asked whether any kags that his affair started when he was still in active duty. >> we obviously are going to watch this closely to determine just exactly you know when that took place. but i think right now my vi
of the cia. >> and, suzanne, we don't know how long the fbi was investigating, do we know if the obama administration knew about this before the election? >> no, but wouldn't we all love to know the answer to that. that really is a burning question. just days after the election, something like this comes out. clearly something like this had been going on for a while. it wasn't -- you know, it's not likely that a couple of days after the election, general petraeus had a crisis of conscience and decided this is the time now for me to come clean on everything. which also makes you wonder, did other people know about this? was there the possibility they could have used this against him or to black mail him in any way? that would have spoken directly to his ability to protect secrets as well. lots of unanswered questions. more will be coming out in the coming days. >> the other questions, did the administration, if they knew about it decide not to let this be announced before the i election because they didn't want to do anything that would impact the election? does that raise security conc
of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and yet, you know, general petraeus was involved, director petraeus was involved. for me if it was the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest state so it seems to be going on for severalonths and, yet, now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up, and you have this type of investigation. the fbi investigating emails, the emails leading to the cia director and taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving the hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding, dedicated public official. he is going to be missed. as i'm sure senator mendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government, but he will have at least a short-term impact any time you lose someone like general petraeus's stature, especially

to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the affair between general petraeus and paula broadwell. meantime a team of fbi agents searched broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, overnight, and spent nearly five hours there wrapping up just after 1:00 in the morning. "wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much more complicated. we've got team coverage of the breaking news this morning. chris lawrence is at the pentagon. chris, i don't even know where to begin because there's so much to talk about. let's start with general allen. what's the implications of this -- of him being brought in to petraeus scandal and what has he said about it
. first of all, i'm wondering -- excuse me -- how something ichlg e-mails went to the level of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and if general petraeus was involved to me the fbi had an obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date. so it seems this has been going on for several months and yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up that you have this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. so i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving a hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding dedicated public official. he's going to be missed. but as i'm sure senator menendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government. but it is going to have at least a short-term impact. anytime you los
. the general's affair was actually uncovered during an investigation by the fbi. the fbi's involvement has raised questions with at least one former cia operative. >> i'm not going to, but there are four or five cia directors that i know were carrying on extramarital affairs while they were director. the fbi was never brought in. the office of security was never brought in. it was ignored. it went away quietly. we'll never know about them. so this is absolutely extraordinary. i'm telling you it's more to do than with sex. there's something going on here which i can't explain and i think we're going to find out very soon. >> petraeus took over as cia chief after a long career in the army, most recently as the man leading operations in afghanistan. the cia will be run by michael morrell who has been deputy director since may of 2010. >> there are plenty of questions surrounding the timing of the resignation. joining me is suzanne kelly. good to have you back with us. why was the fbi involved? >> reporter: well, victor, a u.s. official tells cnn the fbi was investigating a tip that david petr

dedicated army colonel quit after announcing he had an extramarital affair. it's an fbi affair that's sounding alarms. the fbi was investigating some suspicious e-mails and found some e-mails between paula broadwell and david petraeus. broadwell is the woman who wrote his biography. the fbi looks to see whether his communications had been compromised, and they said they had not been. now, petraeus was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was h

to accepting that resignation. but david petraeus felt it was a matter of honor. we're also told that the fbi had been alerted to this and was looking into this issue in the small picture it means david petraeus will not testify next week in many of those committees on the situation in benghazi and what happened. it means that his number two will now take over the cia on an interim basis. and it really throws the president's national security team into a bit of flux just days after the election. [ technical difficulties ] >> unfortunately that tape is not working right now. we're going to try to fix that problem. and let me just underscore, chris, how significant this is right now in terms of not only the intelligence community but the u.s. military as you know general petraeus a graduate of west point, highly decorated four-star general served in iraq, was called on on an emergency basis to try to fix the situation in afghanistan, had a brilliant, brilliant career, a scholar, a professor of international affairs at west point after getting a ph.d. from princeton. this is really a shocking de

uncovered by an fbi investigation into a series of e-mails sent by his biographer, paula broadwell, who was accused of sending harassing e-mails to another woman. that sparks an investigation that revealed her secret relationship with petraeus. but after looking at a recent speech she gave on the death of four americans in libya, people started wondering whether she and petraeus had shared any classified intel and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal.
